You're busy. You're working, commuting, looking after the family, being superwoman.
There's no time for lunch. Or even breakfast actually. You'll just grab a biscuit on the go. Or maybe a handful of biscuits, some crisps. Anything you can have on the way out the door and eat in the car.
I read somewhere once that you should treat yourself as though you were your child.
Would you let your child go without breakfast, or just eat a bag of crisp and some cookies for breakfast? My guess is that you wouldn't.
So why do you let yourself get away with it?
Life moves at a super fast pace. And if you're caught up and rushing around trying to please everyone, then take a moment. Have a break (not a Kitkat). Read this blog.
Here are a few breakfast ideas that take hardly any time, and you can make in batches and eat throughout the week. I'm not very good at following instructions when it comes to cooking, so I like things I can chuck together without much (or any) measurements...
Jar (a washed out jar from a sauce or jam is fine)
Milk (Cows, Almond or Coconut milk, or even water)
Put the ingredients in the jar, leave to soak overnight. Eat straight from the fridge. Make up a few pots at a time so you have breakfast for a few days.
Hard boil some eggs and leave them in the fridge. You can then have these on a rivita, on toast, with an avocado or with some spinach. Packed with protein which should help keep you fuller for longer, preventing you from reaching for the sugary snacks!
Yoghurt and Granola
Make some granola from oats, honey and coconut oil and have it in the cupboard ready to mix with yoghurt for a quick breakfast.
